London - Emmanuel Adebayor grabbed two late goals as Tottenham beat Swansea 3-1 on Sunday to move level on points with north London rivals Arsenal in the battle for the third Champions League spot in the Premier League.

The Togo striker planted home headers in the 73rd and 87th minutes to take his tally for the campaign to 13 and end Spurs' five-match winless run in the league that was jeopardising their hopes of a top-four finish.

With seven matches remaining, Tottenham are behind Arsenal only on a goal difference and five points clear of Chelsea and Newcastle.

Netherlands playmaker Rafael van der Vaart had given the hosts the lead at White Hart Lane in the 19th minute, only for Gylfi Sigurdsson to equalise just before the hour mark for mid-table Swansea.
